Story is where it's at.

Stunning visuals, a story that's very detailed and deep, but also a game that kind of feels almost as if you're playing Saints Row in an MMO wrapper, lol. It's freaky looking people and a mind-blowing spiritual realm apocalyptic fallout spiritual warfare scenario. Doomsday is on it's way (cue Darksiders, lol) and apparently a few factions are at war with each other for control. Pay once, play forever (as long as your internet connection works that is) and it's all good. The big question is, can you understand the realistic significance in the story? ;)

What a surprise!

I picked this game up on a whim and boy was I shocked at how good this game is. No levels or classes help set this game apart from other WoW clones and harken back to mmo's like SWG. The quests are one of the main selling points due to how unconventional they are in comparison to standard mmo fair. The games setting is also rich with details and the graphics are also quite stunning.

If you have a passing interest in Horror/Thrillers with some conspiracy thrown in for good measure you owe it to yourself to give this game a go.

Story Driven Approach

While definitely not a solo-mmmo, The Secret World can feel more single-player oriented than others in the genre. While I fell in love with Rift's autogrouping and rift events, The Secret World takes a different approach and focuses on story and environment right out of the gate.

Investigation missions mean you actually have to have explored, read the signs and leaflets scattered around town, looked at portraits, and spoken to the locals. It's different, it's interesting, and while I may not renew right away, I am thrilled to be playing it now and know that I can also pick up a subscription and step back in.

Amazing!!!!!

I bought this game yesterday and it is just plain incredible! This game combines everything from the supernatural to the FBI to the Illuminati and crazy organizations like that! The graphics aren't that great, but for an MMO it is simply amazing! There's plenty of humor and there are many MANY characters for you to play as, which adds a lot to the fun factor. One key point of this game is the environment. At times, the environments are simply mind-blowing, they can either be mysterious, or fantasy, or scary. This game is a must-buy.
